The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, January 24, 2019 (booth 18610) – Bose Professional is exhibiting the latest additions to its ToneMatch audio engine series: the powerful eight-channel T8S ToneMatch mixer and four-channel T4S ToneMatch mixer, representing the next generation of the ToneMatch line and offering unprecedented connectivity with intuitive control. Also being introduced are custom ToneMatch carry cases for both models, optimized to hold the mixer and a power supply or ToneMatch cable; the cases will be available in April 2019.
Compact and portable, the T8S and T4S are both gig-ready. Craig Jackson, Market Category Lead, Portable Systems for Bose Professional, remarks, “The T4S and T8S are designed to make performing easier for musicians and DJs. Modern digital mixers can often be difficult to use. We focused on making our new mixers sound great and offer seamless live control. They feature powerful audio processing and a simple user interface that allow our customers to get up and running quickly so they can focus on their music.” Their rugged enclosures have a protective, magnetically-coupled cover to protect controls and connectors. A chassis-bottom insert allows the use of standard mounting accessories to keep the mixers in reach during performances.
About the T8S ToneMatch Mixer:
The eight-channel T8S ToneMatch mixer is intuitive to operate, with illuminated, stage-friendly tactile controls, an easy-to-read display and scene recall. ToneMatch processing presets with the powerful and advanced DSP engine (including studio-quality effects and Bose zEQ equalization, which redefines low, mid and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset) make it easy for musicians to take control of their music. When used with Bose L1 and F1 systems, the T8S provides full end-to-end tonal optimization.
The T8S includes a ToneMatch power supply. Dimensions: 8.4” x 12.25” x 3.25” (214 mm x 311 mm x 83 mm).
In a recent review for Harmony Central, Craig Anderton wrote, “… It seems like the T8S was designed with the intention to set records for shortest setup time required, even if you don’t know much about mixing or live sound. And although general-purpose presets are handy, the Bose Professional ToneMatch system really does take the concept of presets to the next step. … It’s super-easy to figure out; even features like being able to set aux outs pre- or post-mix are intuitive.”
About the T4S ToneMatch Mixer:
The four-channel T4S offers most of the same features as the T8S, but also includes dual ToneMatch ports – designed to send digital audio to L1 Model 1S/II systems while receiving power on the same included ToneMatch cable (note: when not used with an L1 system, the T4S can also be optionally powered by an accessory ToneMatch power supply). The final difference between the mixers is the inclusion of an output meter on the T8S (not included on the T4S). Dimensions: 8.4” x 7.25” x 3.25” (214 mm x 184 mm x 83 mm).
45-Day Better Music Guarantee:
To make it convenient for customers to experience Bose T4S/T8S mixers in their own environment with their specific gear, Bose has included the products in its 45-Day Better Music Guarantee. Exclusive to Bose direct sales channels, users can buy and try a system, and if for any reason they are not satisfied, they may return it for a refund. Optionally, customers can easily try out the mixers at participating MI retailers.
